- Some Door County apple growers will not be able to bring in a crop this year.
Two months ago hail destroyed some of the crops.
Apples are rotting on the branches at Fellner Orchards just north of Sturgeon Bay.
Grower Bob Fellner says he lost 60 acres of apples that he can't even sell for juice.
He says it's a complete loss.
At the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station in Sturgeon Bay, every type of fruit crop on the 20 acre site got damage from hail.
One worker called the physical damage to the apples beyond anything he could have imagined.
The storm cut a narrow path through parts of northern Door County.
In areas not hit by the hail, growers there say this year's crop looks good.
But it is behind because of a cold spring and late bloom.
